Identification of Self-Propelled Sweepers and Cleaning Equipment Part 2 - Machines with a Gross Vehicle Mass Up to 5000 kg
This SAE Standard applies to all self-propelled machines with a gross vehicle mass up to 5000 kg that are utilized to clean material from outside paved areas, parkland, floors in non-residential buildings and areas principally exposed to pedestrian traffic. Primary methods for material removal can be by mechanical, pneumatic, washing and flushing systems, or in a combination of any system.
Rationale: This document provides terms and definitions so that they can be consistently applied to describe Self-Propelled Sweepers and Cleaning Equipment. This revision updates the applicable machine classification outlined in Table 1 of SAE J1116 whereas self-propelled sweepers and cleaning equipment were moved from the Earthmoving machine category to the Road Building and Maintenance machine category in the 2013 edition.
